Viva la Nina

That's what one of the shirts being sold in Whitefish said, and in case you didn't know La Nina is responsible for the rediculous winter most of the country experienced this past season (esecially the west coast).  When I left Montana last year my cousin was telling me about how somtimes La Nina can stick around for two years, and well I've been keeping track of some climate predictions and its looking more and more likely.  Check out this link to Unofficial Networks (which is an awesome website btw) and this one to talking about how it seems likely to see " the re-emergence of La NiƱa during Northern Hemisphere fall 2011". 

Hate to say that when we still have at least a full month of summer left, but that is awesome news, hopefully northern New England gets totally hammered with nothing but snow this upcoming winter, and I have a feeling Montana will too.  Time to start planning a trip to Whitefish, Viva la Nina!

Anyone catch the x-games last night?  BMX big air was OK, I find it pretty boring and people were getting taken out, not many people landed anything, and Chad Kagy even broke his femur I believe.  It kind of looked like the jump sucked though, no one could get enough pop to do the tricks they wanted it seemed like.  The dude that pulled the triple backflip before was pedaling down the giant roll in, and he basically tried a backflip to flipwhip.

Moto X best trick was insane though, Pastrana managed to break his foot doing this.

Someone else did a front flip, someone tried a front flip no hander, and there was a double backflip nac nac.  I'm not the biggest fan of freestyle moto, but you can't deny those guys are progressing at a crazy rate.

And just to jump around in this post even more here is something I randomly came across online, but I thought it was kind of cool.

An old Cherokee man is teaching his grandson about life. "A fight is going on inside me," he said to the boy.
"It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves."

"One wolf is evil - he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego."

He continued, "The other wolf is good - he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, happiness, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith.

The same fight is going on inside you - and inside every other person, too."

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, "Which wolf will win?"

The old Cherokee grandfather simply replied, "The one you feed.""
